Om Shree Mahalakshmyai Cha Vidmahe
Vishnu Patnyai Cha Dheemahi Tanno
Lakshmi Prachodayat Om
I offer salutations to Maa Mahalakshmi and bow my head inhonor of Lord Vishnu’s wife. I seek her blessings to fulfill.
Varamahalakshmi Vrata is a festival to propitiate the Goddess Lakshmi, the consort of Lord Vishnu, one of the Hindu Trinity. Varalakshmi is one who grants boons. It is an important pooja performed by married women.
The Hindu festival going by the name ‘Vara MahaLakshmi Vrata’ is celebrated on the Second Friday or the Friday before the day of the full moon – Poornima – in the month of Shravana, which corresponds to the Gregorian months of July–August.
It is believed that worshipping the Goddess Varalakshmi on this day is equivalent to worshipping Ashtalakshmi – the eight goddesses of Wealth, Earth, Wisdom, Love, Fame, Peace, Contentment, and Strength.
At SVT, ‘Vara Lakshmi Vratam’ is being performed on Friday the 31st July.
